Will IPL Help Red Marks from TCA Peel, Exacerbated by Fraxel?
2 years ago I had a series of 3 TCA-peels which I was very pleased with, except for some red streaks left on my upper lip, exactly where I had tiny wrinkles before. It looks like the TCA pooled in the wrinkles and gave me a deeper peel there. My skin became very smooth and the red streaks faded somewhat given time. A month ago I had Fraxel to help skin texture, but unfortunately Fraxel made the red streaks on my upper lip reappear - bright red again. Will IPL help this? Other suggestions?
